Cucumber Cups with Whipped Feta and Dill


Prep time: 20 minutes Cook time: n/a Serves: 4-6


Ingredients: 8 oz. cream cheese, softened 8 oz. Feta, crumbled 3 T. half & half 2 T. fresh dill (or 2 t. dried) 1 t. garlic powder Sea salt and black pepper, to taste 4 medium cucumbers, cut into 4-5 equal sized sections* Garnish: (optional) Fresh dill and/or mint sprigs *Cucumbers can be peeled, partially peeled, or unpeeled depending on personal preference.

Directions:

  • Place cream cheese, Feta, half & half, dill, and garlic powder in a large mixing bowl and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Beat with a hand mixer or immersion blender until mixture is light and fluffy. Set aside.

  • Trim each cucumber section so that the bottom is flat and top is slightly angled. Carefully scoop out the interior of each section with a small measuring spoon, leaving enough space on the bottom and sides to form a small “cup.”

  • Transfer some of the whipped Feta mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a large tip (or use a plastic sandwich bag with one of the bottom corners removed). Carefully pipe the whipped Feta into each cucumber cup and set on a serving platter.

  • Serve immediately garnished with sprigs of fresh dill and/or mint, if desired. Enjoy!
